CHICAGO, Jan. 26, 2023 — GCM Grosvenor (Nasdaq: GCMG), a leading global alternative asset management solutions provider, today announced that the GCM Grosvenor Secondary Opportunities Fund III, L.P. (“GSF III”) completed its final close with $972 million in committed capital. GSF III showed a 38% increase in commitments compared to its predecessor fund GSF II, reflecting strong investor demand.
The diversified base of fund investors includes corporate, public, and Taft-Hartley pension plans, financial institutions, insurance companies, sovereign entities, high net worth individuals, and others in the U.S., Europe, and Asia-Pacific regions.
“We appreciate the strong endorsement of our secondaries strategy from our investors, and we share their conviction in the secondary market broadly,” said Brian Sullivan, Managing Director and head of the firm’s secondaries business. “We believe our secondaries strategy is well-positioned in a market where volume in Limited Partner transactions continues to grow and the General Partner-led secondaries market accelerates rapidly.”
GSF III will focus on providing investors with a single point of entry to a diversified set of private equity secondary fund interests, including both Limited Partner- and General Partner-led opportunities. The fund expects to primarily acquire interests in middle-market buyout funds and may also invest in special situations, growth equity, real assets and venture.
